Soft tissue OT in the workplace
West Coast Occupational Therapists can come to your workplace and provide soft tissue occupational therapy treatment for staff.
Working can be hard on the body. Prolonged sitting, manual handling jobs and ageing can all lead to employees with stiff, sore bodies and poor posture. In our current work environment early intervention and preventative health is of upmost importance for maintaining healthy and productive staff. Our treatment breaks down muscle adhesion, increases blood flow and helps to overcome imbalances between weak and tight muscles. This in turn leads to less musculoskeletal dysfunction for staff in the workplace and ultimately less down time and loss of valued employees.
